The First Book of Adam and Eve

Read by Ann Boulais

(4.5 stars; 131 reviews)

The Conflict of Adam and Eve with Satan is a Christian pseudepigraphical work found in Ge'ez, translated from an Arabic original and thought to date from the 5th or 6th century AD. It was first translated from the Ethiopic version into German by August Dillmann. It was first translated into English by S. C. Malan from the German of Ernest Trumpp. The first half of Malan's translation is included as the "First Book of Adam and Eve" and the "Second Book of Adam and Eve" in The Lost Books of the Bible and the Forgotten Books of Eden. Books 1 and 2 begin immediately after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden and end with the testament and translation of Enoch. Great emphasis is placed in Book 1 on Adam's sorrow and helplessness in the world outside the garden. (Summary by Wikipedia) (3 hr 11 min)

From what I heard and what I know from the bible, I see no reason why this not conceidered as part of sacred cannon. I learned alot from it. Made me see my own faith and story projects in new light.

Interesting how people complain about the lack of perfection of the reader (narrator) with such high demands as to "pitch", "cadence", "inflection". Narrating a book is not a simple task. Narrating a book for free/no pay is an act of service to those who may not be able to read because of poor eyesight other physical impediment or due to not knowing how. The demands of the lazy for perfection are not the concern of the narrators whose labor is dedicated to the former mentioned, not the lazy or cheap. To demand perfection, you must pay for it. There are for pay versions of all the free audiobooks.

I’m grateful someone took their time to record this book. This was the first audio book I’ve ever listened to so I have no baseline for comparison as far as quality of the reader. She was easy to listen to and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in books that were omitted from the Bible.

Nice job of filling in missing gaps

good job of filling in a lot of left out information from the Hebrew text of the biblical canon of scripture. how much if it we should take to heart as fact I will never concretely endorse as with any other text that didn't make the final cut to be included. however what it has to share is eye opening and insightful if it does indeed prove somehow to be true. I have no trouble accepting the things it has to say, but with that said I would always err on the side if caution and teach these things as speculation rather than ingallinke fact. otherwise good job.

as a Christian literature consumer, I believe this text is true

I would love to see these other forgotten gospels on here as well, very interesting! The reader needs to work on her pitch and modulation though, she ends a lot of sentences on a very low note (like most sentences ending in "him") and it sounds very strange in its cadence
